    MSNBC just reported that it was handed out this morning at the press "gaggle" and that the President will be speaking about it in 45 minutes.

    Not a good move. Should never give the birther idiots the time of day or the free pub. Because nothing will suffice for them.

    It will be interesting. Clearly they thought it was enough of a problem that they had to do it.

    Though, I suspect that their will be new conspiracies developed within the next hour or two.

    Also, for what it's worth, I meant to post this in "Sports & News".

    He's been the President of the United States for several years now. If he can't fake a document by now, what's he doing in the office?

    The idiots will just move their closed minds on to something else.

    I'm hearing that it was found at the bottom of a pile of horse manure in Gary, Indiana.

    Trump is in New Hampshire, holding court.

    I have a hard time with the press corps treating him like a serious candidate.

    He just said, that OPEC countries, who rely on the American military, should pay tribute in the form of lower oil prices.

    Now he's saying Obama should now release his academic records. *sigh*

    Obama releases original birth certificate


    Seriously, what's the point? It's not going to end this. If the birthers don't think the COLB is authentic, why would they be satisfied with this?

    I basically agree, but...

    If you're going to give him press and include him in you polls, and then he says that he's considering running and is among the leaders in the polls, what else can you do?

    The media created him. They can't now wonder why he's getting press.

    Re: Obama releases original birth certificate

    Yeah, but where's a witness? Where's the placenta? Where's the circumcision records? Where's the kindergarten records? WHY DOESN'T HE JUST RESIGN HERPA DERPA DING DONG DIDDILY DOO?

    Obama: Please don't legitimize Aunt Mabel and her chain e-mails from friends.

    Not sure why the White House is lending any credence to the birther attack at this point. What's next, Obama disavows Rev. Wright again?

    The Republicans don't seem to have a viable candidate right now. Trump? Bachman? Haley Barbour just announced he's not running. Romney signed a health care bill as governor of Massachusetts that requires people to buy insurance, the same as Obama's health care bill, so he can't attack Obama on one of the major points of his presidency.

    I'm sure the Repubs will find someone -- Romney or Gingrich -- but as much as Obama's presidency seems mired in neutral, so it is for the Repubs to find a capable challenger. Hence, we get birther crap. Fantastic.

    Obama can sometimes be short & snippy. (And I don't mean that as a major criticism, anyone can be.)

    But when he has good news, or a winning issue, he's the funniest, most confident guy in the world.

    He's giving the press shit for breaking into their broadcasts to carry this press conference when they wouldn't for more important ones.
